BE KIND!

May 16, 2022

Hello Bootcampers!

This week is dedicated to KINDNESS!

Let’s focus on being extra kind this week. When you perform an act of kindness, you inspire others around you to be kind – it’s contagious. Best of all, being kind can increase your happiness and energy levels, and make you feel more at peace! At WOFB, mental health is just as important as physical health! Help us spread KINDNESS this week (and every week)! Kindness is magic!

Here is some inspiration:

  • Give an unexpected compliment.
  • Plant a tree.
  • Slow down so someone can merge in front of you in traffic.
  • Give someone your seat on a crowded bus or subway.
  • Call a friend that you haven’t spoken to for a while.
  • Send a letter to a grandparent.
  • Send flowers to a friend.
  • Offer to pick up some groceries for your elderly neighbor.
  • Send someone a handwritten note.
  • Walk your friend’s dog.

FOOD LABELS

May 11, 2022

If you’re like me, the first thing you do when you pick up a packaged food item is look for the nutrition label.  It can sometimes be confusing when trying to read the label because the information listed can be misleading.

For example, when you see the calorie & macronutrient information, you cannot assume that those numbers apply to the entire food item.  You have to be sure to check the SERVING SIZE.   For example, in the graphic below –>  290 calories applies to one serving and there are 5 servings in the entire package.  This means, only 1/5 of the food item is 290 calories, NOT THE WHOLE THING.  So to portion it out and get 290 calories worth, you have to measure 1/5 of the contents or 200 g as listed in parentheses next to the serving size.

Next, if you remember from your WOFB book, calories are units of energy that come from 3 main macronutrients –> carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Carbohydrates and proteins each provide 4 calories of energy per gram, and fats provide 9 calories peer gram.

MONDAY…

May 9, 2022

While many people dread Mondays, Monday can actually be the best day of the week if you let it be. Change your perspective and allow wonderful things to happen!

Research shows that if we start a new project or set a new goal on Monday, we are more likely to follow through. We are more motivated at the beginning of a period, like in the morning, on a Monday, and at the start of the year. We are also more likely to make healthy food choices on Monday SO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS GREAT DAY!
